The call for proposals for next year’s HERDSA (Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia) conference is now open. The conference will be held in Sydney, Australia from 27 – 30 June.

The theme of the conference is Curriculum Transformation.

Effective curriculum transformation is seen to optimise the curriculum as a framework for student learning and experience rather than as simply an organising framework for disciplinary knowledge. It puts quality at the centre of this process and ensures support for staff in curriculum development and innovative teaching practice.

The planning committee has endeavoured to capture the different drivers and challenges for curriculum transformation under four sub-themes. The points under each sub-theme provide guidance of possible research topics for you to address but we encourage you to interpret the theme as it best suits your context.
